Luckily, they'd set aside space for about 8 food trucks. They sold a variety of foods from Vietnamese pho to pizza to burgers. My very pregnant friend Lori choose the "extra cheesy burger" and fries from the "Sorry I'm Hungry" truck.

Tonight, we stopped at a fruit stand on our way back from dinner. I'd stopped there yesterday, where I purchased a bag of freshly cut pineapple ($.50) and a bag of cut green mango ($.50). The owners baby was asleep on the cart next to the fruit so I asked if she was for sale as well (for $.50). The dad said yes, the mom said no.
Tonight I got more green mango and also some ripe mango. Total price was 45 Baht (about $1.10) but when I offered 60 Baht, they just took 40. A discount for a returning customer. I'm going to really miss the fresh fruit at such a bargain. Along with the friendly vendors.
As we continued our walk to the hotel, dodging cars and motorbikes, we paused to let a dog run past. He was heading to the fence to challenge a dog in the yard. What made the encounter unusual was that the street dog was wearing a flowered dress.
Yup, just another evening in Bangkok.
